What Is Dental Trauma?

Dental trauma is a term that describes a wide range of injuries, including chipped, cracked, fractured, loose, and avulsed (knocked out) teeth. While dental trauma is commonly caused by accidents and sports injuries, you may also fracture or crack a tooth by grinding your teeth, jaw clenching, or biting into something hard. When the pulp inside a tooth is injured, it can become inflamed or infected, which is when an endodontist is needed. Sometimes, there may not be any visible damage to a tooth, but the pulp might still be compromised.

When it comes to dental trauma, there is no universal treatment that will work for every case. In some circumstances, a root canal and restoration will save an injured tooth, while in others, an extraction may be required. If you've experienced a traumatic injury, the best way to save your tooth is to seek emergency endodontic treatment.
